Dallas Mavericks guard Raymond Felton has been suspended four games by the NBA "for pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm," the league announced on Thursday.

Felton pled guilty on the gun charge a couple of weeks ago, and he avoided jailtime. He was given a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. The incident that got him arrested, which involved a semiautomatic handgun, occurred back in February in New York. A suspension was expected after the guilty plea.

The Knicks sent Felton to Dallas in June as part of the trade that brought Jose Calderon to New York and Tyson Chandler back to the Mavericks.
